    A gallery forest is defined as a stretch of forest occurring along the banks of a watercourse (river, stream, drainage way, etc), flowing through a region having no trees or very few trees.

    Interesting examples of gallery forests include Morichales of Llanos ecoregion of South America; gallery forests of La Gran Sabana / the Great Savanna region of Venezuela; gallery forests of Brazilian Savanna or Cerrado Region; gallery forests of Konza Prairie Biological Station (KBPS is a tallgrass prairie ecosystem in Kansas, United States); etc.
